Webinar: Managing Supplier Risk in Todays Global Economy

webinar description

The new global economy is creating complexity within supply chains as discrete manufacturers find themselves dealing with suppliers from across the globe making supplier risk and product disruption harder to manage.

A significant concern among manufacturers today is how to maintain secure and efficient supply chains that keep pace with innovation, protect against internal and external threats, and balance the complexities of a global economy.

As manufacturers across all industries now realize, in order to gain competitive advantage they must make risk management a top priority. Those that have a formal supplier risk management strategy are able to avoid disruptions and build resilient supply chains.

This 60-minute webinar will help manufacturers understand the types of risks that can impact the supply chain.
